Cottage house plan has wrap around porch

Cottage house plan has wide open floor plan with a covered, wrap around porch. Wood burner nook could be traded out for fireplace. Designed for country living or large building site. Master suite downstairs with a second bedroom down optional guest suite or study. Three bedrooms upstairs shared by a children’s den. One of the three is largest enough for two or three children to share. This indeed is large family home

Compared to most of my designs, this one is quite plain, however, if you look closely you’ll notice the detailing that makes this home special. Even though the living area is wide open, the separate spaces are defined with ceiling and flooring lines

The second floor is built into the roof, referred to as a story and half. Thought to be more affordable than a full two story, however, such is not the case. Exterior walls are cheaper than roof structure. The steep pitch needed to house the second floor is pricey, but beautiful. Some don’t appreciate the look of a full two story home. Even though this design has a wide span, it’s affordable if roof trusses are used. Having worked at a truss company many years ago, I have a great understanding of just how amazing they are. Some people say that they’re flimsy, and alone, they are. Trusses are designed to work as a team, and that they do. With trusses we can span great distances, where before, using rafters, it was impossible to span a great distance without post and beaming
